The Game of Thrones death toll got even bigger this week thanks to the heart-wrenching season finale, so rather than worry about what lies ahead, let's look back at some of the cast's earliest moments together. To remember some of the happier times and get a glimpse of some characters we've had to say goodbye to, we've rounded up pictures from the 2011 TCA panel, the cast's first Comic-Con panel, and the season one DVD launch. While some of the actors have only recently exited the show, others were killed off early in the series. (RIP, Ned.) Keep reading to see the best pictures from the early Game of Thrones events, then check out must-see photos of the Game of Thrones cast out of character and a ranking of the season finale's most devastating deaths.
